honoring the birthday of dr. martin luther king jr. today on that holiday swearing in the nation's first african-american president, not for the first time, but for the second time, it marks a different kind of milestone. because in winning hi second term, let it be known that this was not a fluke. our country did not just pick our first black president by luck because he was just the democratic who happened to benefit from a national recoil and backlash against what was widely viewed as a rather disastrous republican presidency that preceded him. the country did not just choose barack hussein obama to be president. the country chose barack hussein obama to be president twice. we picked him again a second time after watching him in action for four years, and then having a very good chance to pick a new guy instead. this will never happen again. barack obama will never run for office again. and we do not know who will succeed him as president in four years. but the honoring of the office of presidency today, again, entrusted to him, will forever be a day writ large, writ large by us by ou

the inauguration this weekend. you know, martin luther king holiday on monday. it is just sort of sandwich this in tomorrow seems like tough timing and maybe even a little inappropriate? >> well, to go to your first point, the timing was based on the fact that on the first day of the 113th congress there were nine bills introduced to basically grab our guns. and, dianne feinstein's bill is set to be introduced on the 22nd. joe biden and president obama guaranteed they would pass sweeping gun legislation, you know, before the end of the month. so there wasn't much time to do this. we had to act swift. we had to act strong. we had to make a statement. melissa: talk to me about the actions being taken in washington right now. for example, you know, do you really think that stricter gun control rules in the form of background checks, you know, don't make sense? what about closing the gun show loophole? you really don't support that in any way? no way that is part of it makes sense? >> there could be a part that makes sense. talk about what that will achieve. how many people commit crimes going

, january 21st. now, that is also martin luther king day. interesting, though. the constitution says the president has to be sworn in specifically on the 20th day of january, not the 21st. but the 20th of january falls on a sunday this year. so they have decided to do this as kind of a two-step. on sunday, the 20th, chief justice john roberts will swear in president obama for his second term. but they'll do it at an official, small ceremony at the white house at noon on sunday. the following day, on monday, that will be the whole pomp and circumstance giant event. but that second swearing in ceremony, the big one on the day with everybody there, that is going to be ceremonial, because the real one will have happened the day before. it's kind of weird, right? that this is the second time president obama and chief justice john roberts are going to have kind of a hincky time with the swearing in. remember what happened the first time with those two? chief justice said part of the oath wrong the first time. so just to be safe, they had to go back the next day and repeat the oath privatel
